Looking Back at 2011

I thought it would be fun to do a top 10 for the year, or maybe 11 for 2011. But it was too hard to condense the year and narrow down my pictures that much. So here are 18 pictures to recap 2011. It doesn’t have quite the same ring as a “top 10” or “11 for ’11” would, but oh well. As you can tell, we had a lot of fun in 2011. And this doesn’t even include all our park playdates, or our trips to the Children’s Museum, the Georgia Aquarium, and Zoo Atlanta, or all her playtime at home, playing dress-up and doing arts and crafts, or a bunch of other random fun we’ve had throughout the year. But it covers most of the big highlights from the year I think. I’m looking forward to 2012 being another great year, and hoping to keep up even better with this blog in 2012.

We started the year with a snow storm in Georgia that had us homebound for almost a week! But we did have fun playing out in the yard! Andrea still talks about it.
One of my all-time favorites of Andrea!!!

A couple of videos

I’ll keep this post fairly short, since I just want to share a couple of videos from yesterday.

I’ve been meaning to post some video of Andrea’s ballet class, since it’s pretty much the cutest thing ever, and I finally managed to take some video yesterday. I can only peek into the class through a little window, so it’s not the best video, and you can’t really hear anything, but it’s still pretty darn cute. When you watch, don’t worry, they were supposed to sort of dance/run away from their spot a couple of times and then run/gallop back. It’s a little confusing if you don’t hear the instructions they were getting. Also, you’ll notice the girls on either side of Andrea keep goofing off… the teacher said she intentionally put Andrea in the middle of the them because she’s one of the quiet ones. I was a little stunned to hear that. She’s certainly not quite or calm at home!

I also managed to get a little video of Andrea singing on the way to school. She often sings about whatever we’re doing or random things that she sees, which in the car is usually about traffic lights or other vehicles. Yesterday morning I was treated to about 10 solid minutes of a song she made up that I guess is called, “Green, Green, You can go.” I love at the end where she gets a little tongue-tied and says something about when the “right is led” instead of “light is red”. Enjoy! (Oh, and ignore the junk in the back of my van – it was stuff to drop off at Goodwill.)
